Listing Text


736-1/9/6 (South side)
Garden building to south-west of
Blake Gardens


Small building over Durleigh Brook at the junction with the
River Parrett. Early C19. Flemish-bond brick with lean-to
pantile roof. Square plan. Single-storey; 2-window range. The
high parapet obscures the roof. Probably housing a sluice-gate
mechanism, the building has fine gauged brick arches, a
semi-elliptical intrados over the planked door and flat arches
to blocked openings flanking it. Though very simple, the
building adds to the character of the garden and pre-dates the
acquisition of the garden by the Corporation in 1898.
